Jenrry Mejia pitches in the rain

Jenrry Mejia appears fine after lower back issue

Jenrry Mejia should be able to avoid going on the disabled list, though he’s likely to still be unavailable this weekend, Terry Collins said Friday.

Mejia underwent an MRI on Friday (ESPN, June 13), which revealed swelling and stiffness in his lower back.

“They said it’s probably going to be a day or so before he’s going to be available,” said Collins.


Mejia entered the game in the 10th inning on Thursday night and was about to start his second inning of work when he came up lame after tossing a warmup pitch.

The team knew Mejia was pitching with a back issue, making the decision to remove him almost immediate.

Mets say "appears fine" means he be on the dl in a week with a "minor back issue" and miss the next two months recovering.

So I guess we should expect him to leave his next appearance and be put on the DL some time this weekend

That new hitting coach has really turned things around for the Mess. I bet Hudgens is having a good laugh sitting home on his couch.

This team is a disgrace. When kyle Lhose has nearly as good of a batting average as half of our starting lineup, one has to question things.

Another horrible, horrible, horrible loss. Lost 8 of 9. Where's Pollyanna Alderson to tell us that are close to contending. This team is even worse than it's been the last few seasons.

No one held accountable. That's why I won't spend a nickel to support this organization.

Bases loaded and one out and they can't score. Terrible, terrible, terrible. Watch Collins blame the bullpen when they lose. We all know that the offense is horrible.

@Bob Burket I was thinking the same thing. Good move, firing Hudgens, eh?

@rock44 Only 2 men standing in the Outfield, and they can't get the ball out of the infield. Truly pathetic

@rustynail He fits right in with the rest of these losers. How many times will they fail with bases loaded?? Absolutely pathetic

@nwmets @Bob Burket Not really - they just rearranged the chairs - they're still following their flawed hitting approach.  Until that changes I don't expect the hitting to improve by any big margin.

@kingman76 @nwmets @Bob Burket Having major league caliber hitters in the lineup is even more quintessential than philosophy to me. Jared Diamond in Wall Street Journal had article on Murphy's ability to hit at Citi (unlike his teammates) mentioning how Murphy actually follows the team's "hitting philosophy" while other hitters take too many good pitches to hit.
